Social robots have the potential to change our society in multiple ways. Soon they might inform our identity and self-understanding and ways of interacting. How do we create exciting education for our students at the social professions, engaging the students in critical and innovative thinking about the potentials and limitations of social robotics, working with and alongside the robots? At this symposium, we are happy to present and test a series of teaching resources for social- and health-care professionals developed by international researchers engaged in the ProSPEro project.
